Welcome to Georgia!

We can’t wait to welcoming you in Tbilisi. Here are a few messages from your hosts to you. 



Our event location: A space for rebellious minds to create and share.

Fabrika – the event location of the SIA Summit 2018 – is a space for rebellious minds to create and share. Once a soviet sewing factory has been revived and transformed into a multi-functional urban space bringing together enthusiastic individuals ready to stretch their minds with new exhilarating experiences. The space now continues its life as the popular hotspot that unites urban style cafes and bars, artist studios and shops, educational institutions, co-working space, the biggest in the region hostel and mind blowing open space courtyard. Fabrika is the creative center of Tbilisi with a very unique atmosphere. We can’t wait to welcome you at Fabrika!
